      Well, I did in the most minor way possible, I think.  Elected to the board of a Home Owners Association, on the platform that I didn't want it but would do my best if elected.  Because I felt I owed some of my time and effort to the group, just as others had already given.

      Most, though, I think run for election because of the power or money involved.
